I think the Prusa I3 Mk3 is kind of the sweet spot for price and features. These are
well liked and reviewed printers that offer a slew of useful features. For me the
removable bed makes it all worth the price along. It makes removing prints so quick and easy.
Prusa is also a company I can feel very good about supporting. The owner/company have been giving back to the community from very early on.
At kit can be bought for $749 and or you can save yourself the day of assembly and buy a build and tested printer for $999.
